General B. F. Tracy, ex-secretary of
the navy whoii here as one of the legal
aivisori for the Ate lisou Protective com
mittee, visited Topeka la 1S90.
la cenveraation ith a State Journal
reporter he said: 'I remember my visit
to Topeka very well, I came with Presi
dent Harrison ia the fall of 1890, the
soldier's reunion was being held at the
time and the presicent was warmly re
ceived by the peoplu."
In speaking' of national politics he
eaid; "It ia yet to? early to be able to
forecast the possibilities of the next
presidential campaign. When the smoke
of this fail's election has cleared away
and we know just where we are, the pins
for the next campaio will commence to
show themselves. The indications are
now that the next house will be very
evenly divided.
There are as yet I ut three men men
tioned in any way at all prominently ia
connection with the liepublican nomina
tion for the presider cy. They are Alli
son, Reed and McKinley. I am inclined
to think as it now stands Allison is the
most likely candidate on account of his
location. lie is the only man mentioned
who lives west of the Mississippi river,
while Tom Heed lives almost too far east
to be considered at all from a geographi
cal standpoint, although he is being fre
quently mentioned uul warmly endorsed
iu some localities.
. "From what I Lave heard and seen I
am inclined to think at the present time,
Allison would be th a choice of the east
ern Republicans."
"Is ex-President Harrison likely to be
a candidate for the nomination?" asked
the reporter.
"As far as being- an active candidate, I
am satisfied he will not, but should there
be a showing of se.itiment pointing to
wards him as the c.ioice of the party, it
mitfht be otherwise, although I an not
at all authorized 13 speak for him. I
have not seen Pres ident Harrison since
he was last ia New York, several months
"When we passed through Indianapo
lis Monday, I inquired for him and
learned that he had just that day left for
another trip to New York, where he is at
this time."
General Tracey sid he could not re
member having- met Major Morrill, al
though he aupposel he did meet him
while in congress. He expressed a great
interest in the Kan ias election, and said
it was "the general wish throughout the
east that Kansas might be redeemed."
General Tracey w.ts asking- some ques
tions about Jerry Simpson's district, as
to what part of the state it is in and how
large it is, when te was called into a
priv'Eite conference to give some legal
aivice as to how tho protective commit
tee might capture the Santa Fa annual
election tomorrow.
That $50,000 Had Been l.iveu 3Ir. Heath to
Uet 011 Lewelliuf.
A 6tory was circulated on the streets to
day to the etfect that the liepublican
state central committee had placed
money to the amou it of $50,000 in the
hands of II. A. Heath, to bet on the elec
tion of Lewelling.
When asked about the story, Mr. Heath
said it was liction, that he had not seen
any money from that source, but that if
ho had such an amount as that he had no t
doubt he would be able to place at least I
a part of it Mr. Heath left this after- 1
noon for Dallas, Texas.

Mistake of tlie Chairman of a. I'opalifct
Meeting: N o r t ll of Town.
Ex-Sheriff John TI. Wilkerton came
into Topeka today from his farm north
of the city. He said he laid his scruples
aside, and attended a Populist meeting
this week at which John Seheack, can
didate for representative In that district,
was the principal speaker. "George
Harris was made tb.9 chairman of the
meeting," Mr. W ilknrson says, "and after
he had made a few re marks it became evi
dent he was not familiar with the order
of the exercises, or acquainted with the
orator of the evening-. He leaned over
to another Populist on the platform, aad
iuquired who was the speaker. He was
told, and 31 r. Harris announced boldly,
"Ladies and gentlemen, we will next be
addressed by Mr. Scaiup, candidate for
representative." It took several min
utes for him to understand why the Re
publicans who were present gave the
speaker such a cordial welcome.

The show at the Grand opera house
last nig-ht "4-11-44"' was not a partic
ularly new one excepting in name, but
it caught a good house that seemed to be
rather top heavy if one could judge from
the applause that dropped in great
chunks into the parquette.
There was ordinary singing-, rather
antiquated but still funny jokes, and the
regulation dances.
Kinile Heusel and Rheta Mann seem
to own the show a3 they have the most
prominent parts and are the poorest peo
ple iu the company. Miss Mann did only
one thing well and that was her sonij
"And Her Golden Hair was Hanging
Down Her Back," and that was too
broadly sugerestive to appeal to
the admiration of any part of the
house below the balcony. Wni. II. Max
well, who played the part of the "Dutch
Professor," was funny in it and gained a
good deal of applause on his dances.
.ionte Collins iu his medley of three
characters did the smoothest work of the
evening. Miss Norma Weils as the
widow was much better than the star.

Attorney Cieneml Little Won't Allow an
Organ i zation.
Attorney General Little has given out
an opinion which prevented the secretary
of state from filing the charter of tho
Shawnee County Police and Detective
association. D. V. Wilkerson, Arthur E.
Wellman, F. W. Jacobs, S. Watts and W.
H. Williams were named as the directors
of an association which was organized
for the "purpose to f urnish watchmen fur
the guarding and watching and protect
ing of private property, and to aid in the
arresting and convicting of persons
charged with crime, and the doing of
general detective and police patrol duty."
General Little says such an organi
zation would be dangerous to the liber-
' ties of the people and is unwarranted by
! the laws of the state of Kansas.
